Its called masculinity not stupidity

I like how we talked about masculinity in terms of homosexuality and heterosexuality. We were able to discuss how when a guy portrays a stereotypically masculine traits, such as driving a truck or counting the number of sexual partners he has had. But when a man is concerned with fashion or has feminine mannerisms, they are automatically considered gay. This is something we want to change. We decided to change this by calling people out on their harmful words and/or actions. This is what we are going to do to help make indiana university a better place.

Walk in someone else's shoes.

Trading Laces encourages students to gain appreciation for the life experiences of individuals from different backgrounds by participating in and reflecting on highlighted events and experiences related to the following categories: gender, race, ability, sexual orientation, and socioeconomic status.

We ask students to walk a mile in another person's shoes. After all, as Thoreau said: "Could a greater miracle take place than for us to look through each other's eyes for an instant?"

This blog houses the reflections of students who have participated in the Trading Laces challenge.
